We did plant a month late, so the warmth of the days *might* be effecting germination. I made sure to water, and it's rained off and on this past week...
But I have another theory as well. My bean rows are rather sparse, and picked-upon.
Hubby was mowing and called me over to check something out in the grass.....I do believe that we may have found a Guilty Party:
Ok, maybe not these guys (aren't they cute?)(grumble-grumble), but definitely the parents.
And we also suspect the descendants of this guy (hubby has taken care of 5 in the last 2 weeks!):
*sigh* This may just be The Year of Slim-Pickin's....I'm going to go try to fill the gaps with more seed....
